On Spiritual Warfare

Published: April 26, 2016 (Originally published: May 2, 2016)
Q

I have a question concerning what is meant by the phrase “spiritual warfare” ? Are the angels still loyal to God engaged in actual combat with the ones who fell with Satan? I understand that the important thing in being a Christian is following the teaching of Christ, but when I read about things such as this I can’t help but be curious.

Thanks for your time and your website! It continues to be a great tool in my Bible studies.

God bless.

Q

What is the biblical definition of a person who has clean hands and a pure heart for the Lord? Just one who believes in Him or is it much more?

Passover Question

Published: May 3, 2016 (Originally published: May 4, 2016)
Q

My question for you, is about Passover. If Jesus fulfilled the law, why did He do passover the day before, on Preparation day. Is it because He was the Passover Lamb? (thus fulfilling the law!)

Germany And Ezekiel 38

Published: May 3, 2016 (Originally published: May 4, 2016)
Q

I have been reading some recent articles that seem to be advocating that Germany will be a major player in the Ezekiel 38 39 battle! Do you think that Germany could be Rosh rather than Russia?

Another Hebrews 6 Question

Published: May 3, 2016 (Originally published: May 4, 2016)
Q

I have received so much instruction, encouragement and wisdom from your writings. Thank you for allowing the Lord to use you. My question comes from Hebrews 6:4-6 which states: “It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age, if they fall away, to be brought back to repentance, because to their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace.”

I have mulled this verse over and over and cannot seem to grasp it. This isn’t a cloaked stab at the OSAS argument. I am convinced, as you are, that we are saved by what we believe not by how we behave. I simply can’t make these verses align with anything else so that means I’m missing something. Can you help?

Will My Fantasies Keep Me Out Of Heaven?

Published: May 4, 2016 (Originally published: May 5, 2016)
Q

I have a question  about what Jesus said in Matthew 5:28 and what Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 5.  Will fantasies of sexual encounters with women I know keep me from entering into heaven? I know Jesus paid for it all, past present and future, but then I think of these verses. I’m currently battling this sin and it’s a tough one for me.  Could you put these verses into context with respect to the finished work of our most excellent God, King and savior!

What If We Sin In Heaven?

Published: April 26, 2016 (Originally published: May 2, 2016)
Q

Since the raptured Church will still have Jesus as our Savior in Heaven, if we happen to sin in heaven, will He still render to us the protections there as He did here on earth, interceding on our behalf before God the Father? After all, He promised to lose not even one of us from His hand.

With The Lord Or In The Ground?

Published: April 26, 2016 (Originally published: May 1, 2016)
Q

Where do we go after death? Some say we go to be with the Lord immediately and some say that we are still in the ground until the Rapture. Can you provide any scripture info to help resolve this?

Crowns Of Victory, Crowns Of Gold

Published: April 26, 2016 (Originally published: May 1, 2016)
Q

I have a question about the crowns that the church is awarded at the Bema Seat after the rapture. Revelation 4:4 states that the twenty four elders , which represent the church, will have crowns of gold. Then in Rev. 4:10, the crowns are translated from the Greek word stephanos; crowns made of ivy, olive leaves, flowers etc. I know that stephanos crowns are victors crowns. what are your thoughts on this?

Should I Be Baptized Again?

Published: April 26, 2016 (Originally published: May 1, 2016)
Q

I was raised in a Reformed Church that subscribed to infant baptism. My parents had me so baptized at age 5. I always felt this was proper based on my understanding of the doctrine of covenant theology that says infants should be baptized, they way infants were circumcised, prior to faith (Acts 2: 39). I am a believer of many years and my wife and I recently decided to become members (covenant partners) at a non-denominational baptist background church we have attended for 3 years. Now I am told I can not become a member without a baptism of immersion. I know the points or arguments for both. I feel my baptism was sure, based on the character and integrity of God. What do you advise?
